The GB Cup is an annual National tournament for intermediate Regional fencers. Fencers will qualify through a Regional event for the National Final.
The aim of the event is to provide adult intermediate Regional fencers with an annual National tournament.
The Minimum Membership required to compete at the Finals is Recreational.
Regions across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will nominate an event taking place in their region to count as their GB Cup qualifier. Based on placings in these events, along with the eligibility criteria for the finals event, Regions will select the two highest placed fencers in each weapon to represent their Region at the National Finals.
More information on Regional Qualifying events will be announced as they are confirmed.
